Tech Tip: Share control in Teams meetings

It’s on the left. No, wait, your other left!

We’ve all been in a meeting where the person sharing their screen can’t find the thing you’ve been trying to get them to click for the past 10 minutes.

Teams knows that pain, though! That’s why they give meeting participants the ability share control of the screen that’s being shared. Two people will be in control of the shared content, and the person sharing their screen can take back control anytime.

To give control to another participant and to request joint control over a screen, visit Microsoft’s support article.

Please note: When you’re sharing, only give control to people you trust. People you give control to may send commands that could affect your system or other apps.
